The bonkers-opulent Mason House at 211 Commonwealth Avenue entered 2013 as the most expensive listing in Boston. That was even after the 14,850-square-foot mansion's price sunk from $17,900,000 in March 2012 to $16,500,000. And its reign survived a $1M price-chop in February, the biggest in Boston so far this year. Now, as of Sunday, the Mason House has seen its tag trimmed a further $505,000.
Nevertheless! The $14,995,000 asking still makes the 11-BR mansion, with an elevator to every floor and a five-car garage, the king of Boston sales listings—by far. In fact, the closest comer is more than $2M back: 56 Beacon Street, which has been on the market since before the Red Sox's last meltdown, wants $12,500,000. Please.
